June has always been a month of positivity. School ends, summer begins, and everyone seems to be more jovial as a result. There’s a reason why it marks the start of wedding season. But there’s one more facet that makes June all the more enjoyable, and that is the litany of stores which slash prices on a multitude of products in anticipation for a long and fruitful season. From wedding products to Father’s Day deals, June leaves no shortage of great opportunities to save. Here are the best things to buy in June:
The Best Things to Buy in June
Look for wedding-themed sales, especially on dishware. Real Simple suggests June is the best time to buy dishware. Wedding season reaches its peak in early summer, and wedding-appropriate items tend to be on sale. Couples add dishware to their registries and retailers add dishware to their clearance aisle. In fact, Mikasa and Pfaltzgraff—leaders in tableware and dinnerware—are offering 30% off one item until the end of June. Stores dealing directly with the wedding industry should have deals anywhere from 25% to 50% off.
The weather is hot, and so are lingerie deals. Semi-annual sales are in abundance and begin in late May, extending until June. Three retailers that specialize in lingerie include Victoria’s Secret, Forever 21, and Fredrick’s of Hollywood—all of which throwing massive sales. Victoria’s Secret is offering up to 50% off more than 700 styles; swim separates are $12.99 and up, and panties are $3.99 and up. Forever 21’s semi-annual sale is ending on June 8, and it is doing practically the same thing: up to 50% off with panties $2 and under, bras $4 and under, and beauty products starting at $0.50. And finally, Frederick’s of Hollywood is featuring its bottom-line deal of up to 60% off lingerie. Consider June the time to refresh your undie drawer with low prices on sexy selections.
Father’s Day means manly discounts. It’s customary for restaurants to offer Father’s Day deals on the day itself. But what about Father’s Day coupons? Stores with inventory lending excellent products for gifts are ground-zero locales for deals up to June 16. Such stores include Snapfish, Café Press and Personal Creations. Charm your dad with a discounted photo book from Snapfish; give him a hilariously customized T-shirt from Café Press; or, browse the stellar Father’s Day section at Personal Creations for timeless, thoughtful gifts. Each store is currently featuring anywhere from 25% to 50% off items.
June 9 is the time to buy an Xbox One. If you have procrastinated long enough, if all your friends have one, and if you feel like you’re missing out on throngs of glorious fun, put an Xbox One on your June to-buy list. Microsoft announced it would begin to sell the standalone Xbox One for $100 less starting June 9. It is currently priced at $499, and in a couple weeks it will be only $399. The decision to make the gaming console more accessible to the public came as a result of growing demand.
Speaking of manly discounts, keep an eye on tools. Just the words tools and Father’s Day beckon slapstick advertising campaigns. Likewise, early June means tools and other DIY supplies will be on sale. They say building supplies and tools will be up to 50% off.
In summary, there are a lot of categories to find exemplary deals in this June. You might want to also check out graduation deals because the school year for some is yet to end.
